Catherine's story

Catherine is a happily married lady to a man called Daniel. They are blessed with 3 children namely Linet, Nelson, and Brandon who are in school. Her husband is a farmer and they work together supporting the family.

Catherine is a khat farmer with many years of experience in this business and she enjoys it. It is a well-paying cash crop and she makes good income from sales.

To grow her business further, Catherine is requesting a Kiva loan to buy fertilizer, seeds, and pesticides to boost her crop yield. She will use her profits to repay her loan quickly.

Catherine's dream is to be successful and give her family a life of dignity.


This loan is special because:

It finances smallholder farmers to purchase supplies and agricultural equipment.
